Our Canada Music Week Recital for 2019 will take place on Sunday, November 17, 2:00 PM at the Calvin Presbyterian Church, 3311 Ashburn Ave. in Halifax. This event is open to the public and donations are kindly requested.
We are delighted to have Barbara Pritchard as our featured guest this year. She is well-known in Halifax and beyond as a champion of Canadian music. She is active as a solo pianist, accompanist and chamber musician and specializes in music from the 20th and 21st centuries. She has had more than 60 compositions written at her request, and is an Ambassador for the Canadian Music Centre - a national award given to outstanding individuals for their commitment to the performance of Canadian music.
In her words - “I have a passion for Canadian music!” Ms. Pritchard will talk to our students and teachers and perform a few of the short compositions that were written for her.
The event will begin at 2:00 PM and will end no later than 4:30 PM, with Ms. Pritchard’s presentation at approximately 3:00 or 3:15.
All music performed will be by Canadian composers or arrangers and original compositions by students will also be featured. Students are also encouraged to bring an original art work or poem that expresses the mood of their compositions.
